1893 Large Second Anniversary Edition

D007.444.16.031.09

As homage to the 175th anniversary of Union Glashütte's founding father, this limited edition model commemorates the birthday of Johannes Dürrstein. It is not only especially rare – it also celebrates the timeless fascination of mechanical watchmaking. The Large Second Anniversary Edition, with its fine decorations and automatic movement with characteristic UNION rotor, is an unmistakable reference to Glashütte's origins. It features a 41-mm stainless steel case, polished to a high gloss, and a domed sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating on both faces over the dial. The watch is presented on a blue leather strap with a fine crocodile-skin effect.

Description

The first Union timepieces were produced in Glashütte in 1893. Today, with a collection named after this significant year, the brand is reinterpreting elements from its own history. The shape of the case is inspired by historical pocket watches, while numerous other details – such as the blued hands, lacquered dials and "railway track" chapter rings – evoke memories of the great classics.

Saphir

Saphir

The sapphire used by Union Glashütte for its crystals is a white, synthetic sapphire. Thanks to its hardness rating of 9, this crystal can only be scratched by very hard diamond-like substances. Union Glashütte watches only use double-sided anti-reflective sapphire crystals. As there are no reflections on the crystal, the full splendour of the dial is revealed.
